I weighed Ezra today and he's 61.4 pounds - up 11 pounds in 10 weeks. At 7.5 months, I wonder if a pound a week would be considered too much too fast? He's raw fed and eating about 2.5 # a day. He's lean with a visible waist and easily palpable ribs, but I'm concerned about strain on puppy bones. Thoughts from you pros out there on whether I should cut back on food?

My dog gained 2 pounds per week for her first 6 months then slowed WAAYY down to about a pound a month. At his age a pound a week is probably not too much. You can tell, if he has a waistline then he is probably OK

Niko gained about ten pounds a month. He is lean, and never had pano. His hips and elbows are x-rayed as very good.
